Vulnerability Information

Windows Secure Kernel Mode Information Disclosure Vulnerability - 

An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Windows when Windows Secure
Kernel Mode improperly handles objects in memory. A locally-authenticated 
attacker could attempt to exploit the vulnerability by running a specially 
crafted application on a targeted system. Note that the information disclosure
vulnerability alone would not be sufficient for an attacker to compromise a 
system, but would have to be combined with additional vulnerabilities to 
further exploit the system.

The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Windows 
handles objects in memory to prevent information disclosure.

The following table contains links to the standard entry for each 
vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list:

Vulnerability title 						CVE number 	Publicly disclosed 	Exploited
